Galaxy S Advance was the successor of Galaxy S and it features with Dual core Cortex A9 processor, Mali 400MP GPU and 768 MB RAM. Galaxy S advance has pretty high specifications and can handle Android 4.0 ICS easily but Samsung seems to be too dedicated to Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Tab 2 and has not released an ICS update. They have just released a Value pack update Android 2.3.6 Gingerbread stock rom in June 2012 for different regions and other Nordic countries too. If users missed the update via over the air OTA or Kies then you can install this update manually by using ODIN flashing tool.
